Cromer is a railway station in the English county of Norfolk. Because the Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway (M&GNJR) line approached Cromer from the west,following the coastal clifftops,it avoided the steep escarpment which had prevented the earlier line from Norwich running all the way into the town. Consequently,it became possible to build a far more conveniently located station,near to the town centre and the beach. The station opened as Cromer Beach on 16 June 1887 and was renamed Cromer on 20 October 1969,following the closure of Cromer High station in 1954. It is 26 miles 52 chains (42.9 km) down the line from Norwich. Cromer is one of only two former Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway stations to remain operational on the National Rail network;the other being the neighbouring West Runton.
